Why Home Lighting Automation Is Essential To A Home Theater


The artificial and natural lighting in your space can make or break the experience

A home theater is so much more than just a video display and surround sound speakers. Other essential components such as acoustic treatments, comfortable custom home theater seating, integrated room control, and more contribute to the experience. One of the most important things to consider is the room's lighting. Learn why home lighting automation is an important part of any home theater in Olathe, KS!



Create The Perfect Viewing Environment

Lighting has a large effect on creating the ideal cinematic environment. A dark room sets the ambiance as the movie starts and prevents glare from ruining the picture quality. Still, it can be hard to navigate the room when it is time for a bathroom or snack break. Lighting automation makes it easy to turn on the lights from the comfort of your seat. Dimmed overhead lighting or low accent lighting on walls can illuminate your path without affecting the image quality. You can even customize your lighting for the situation, from bright lights for watching sports or playing video games to dark lights for movies. 

Personalize Your Space

Make your home theater beautiful and functional with stylish accent lighting that showcases your style! Tunable LED strips, decorative wall sconces, and column lighting can all be added to make your home theater stand out. Star ceilings are another way to add character by creating the appearance of a starry sky overhead with shooting stars and fiber optic lights. Choose the perfect color and intensity based on what movie you watch, like red and yellow for Iron Man. 

Block Out Natural Light

In the perfect world, your home theater won’t have any windows because natural light can cause a glare on the screen and ruin the experience. However, we know that most rooms have windows, which can cast an unsightly glare onto your screen. Lighting automation can keep this light out using motorized blackout shades. With just the press of a button from the comfort of your seat, you can close your shades. When you integrate your devices with a home automation system, you can even create a “Movie Night” scene that dims the illumination, closes your shades, turns on the air conditioner, and starts the movie all at once!
